Playtime in a very small town in New Zealand with no one on the streets but me.

I know Valentine’s Day is approaching and some of you will be desperate…just to make sure: you’ll need the NZ country code to make the call.
And for my part: it’s 10:30 pm and I just ate half a bag of jumbo peanut-doodles – I guess that means I’m in a happy long term relationship.

Late Night Hike

As blessed as I felt about enjoying summer temperatures in New Zealand just a couple of days ago, as much am I sad about missing out on the New York snow storm. You cannot have it all, I guess.

Happy 2016!
I hope you are having many plans, ideas and dreams to work on!
For me there are at least two exciting endeavors this year:
– the photo gallery I just opened in Germany is thought to give me lots of opportunity to try out new things, and
– in a couple of weeks I’m going to found a software company with a product that might be interesting to many people. However, it’s not photo-related so it won’t be a big topic on this website.

and for now: it’s travel time!
Travelling into the new year…one could almost call it a tradition of me and Steffi now. This year we are on the South Island of New Zealand. This is a typical Queenstown image. Just had to do it before getting the heck out of it. When in Queenstown they say you either love it or hate it. We definitely belonged to the latter group – at least when it comes to the touristic city center which seemed to be flooded with hyper adrenaline-addicted adventure seekers.
I noticed that I cannot make out a favorite spot in New Zealand. My favorite is being between places when on the road. It’s like a never ending slide show of impressive postcard-like images. My tip for your NZ journey would be: just turn on the right music and get lost!
